Arizona Travel Weather
Arizona’s terrain and climate are far more variable than many visitors expect. Elevations here range from 70 feet (~20 m) to 12,000 feet (~3,600 m) above Mean Sea Level. Arizona's average elevation, in fact, is 4,000 feet (~1200 m). Though sunny, cloudless skies are delightfully common, the region may experience heavy summer rains, winter snow and ice and temperature variations of 30-50 degrees F (0-10 C) between dawn and dusk.
